An alternative universe (AU, also known as an alternate universe, alternative timeline, alternate timeline, alternative reality, or alternate reality) is the occurrence of canonical facts about the setting or characterization of a particular fictional universe being explored in a non-canonical way. These universes are often made unofficially, though elements of fan fiction are sometimes used in official, though usually non-canonical, storylines.

Stories that fall into this definition are usually "what-ifs", where possibilities arising from circumstances that do not occur in the original fictional universe are explored. For example, the premise of an alternative universe story may go something like this: "What would happen if character X was killed before event Y could happen?" Unlike regular fan fiction, which generally remains within the boundaries of the canon set out by the author, alternative universe fiction writers like to explore the possibilities of pivotal changes made to characters' history, motivations, or environment.

It had started out as a dream, just a simple dream that wasn't supposed to make sense. That changed quickly when the world was turned upside down, and I found these rings. Rings that held beauty, rings that were so elegant that they didn't seem like human-made creations; rings that could either save our universe...   Or break it.

Jungkook has lived a typical, happy life: he has great friends, a wonderful family, and is about to have the best sixteenth birthday ever... until he fails the testing and finds that he has what the government calls the Breaking, and now he belongs to them.   This story is about a country where there is no such thing as freedom, where even the colors one is allowed to wear is tightly governed. Add in the fact that when one turns sixteen, they must submit to government

    When people fall in love, everything is beautiful. They cannot keep the smiles to themselves; the mere mention of that person’s name can lead to chuckles. One certainly will not be able to help, but look like a fool. However, it does not matter; love makes you oblivious to your surroundings. It can make you only care
